My husband LOVES the History channel. We are big fans of Ice Road Truckers, American Pickers, American Restoration,
Do you really know what "riff raff" is or why we say someone who is in trouble is "over a barrel"? I know. Now.
I would love to show an episode in class. However, not all of the content is appropriate. Some terminology comes from playing poker, drinking, or war. These might be fun to show in an upper grade class though. Otherwise I strongly recommend editing.
If you are a wordsmith or a history buff, check it out!
Chances are if you follow me, you probably follow Megan @ I Teach or Diane @ Teaching with Moxie and already saw their posts. They are two of my BBB and RL friends. I will definitely be there.
The last one was a ton of fun. I hope you will join us.
